Top 10 Best Practices for Online Learning von Dr. Judith V. Boettcher, Ph.D. of Designing for Learning:
- "Be Present at the Course Site" - communicate with the students, use noticeboards and messaging options
- Create a supportive online course community
- Share a set of very clear expectations for your students and for yourself as to (1) how you will communicate and (2) how much time students should be working on the course each week.
- Use a variety of large group, small group, and individual work experiences
- Use both synchronous and asynchronous activities
- Early in the term ask for informal feedback on "How is the course going?" and "Do you have any suggestions?"
- Prepare Discussion Posts that Invite Questions, Discussions, Reflections and Responses
- Focus on content resources and applications and links to current events and examples that are easily accessed from learner's computers
- Combine core concept learning with customized and personalized learning
- Plan a good closing and wrap activity for the course
- Use video examples of real live users in training scenarios
- Create training vids with creators of the training or subject originators - more connection to info
- I find you can explain more with a mixture of pictures and text, and the presenter can make a huge impact
- Of course, as an IxD I love flow diagrams and mock ups. Add interactivity by having students recreate these diagrams/info
- Interaction Designers learn from personal interviews, but also from writing user stories. Writing = learning.
